The final flourish of the Yorkshire Wolds as they meet the North Sea. This chalk arch and stack lie just south of the Fog Horn station on Flamborough Head.
I've been working on this painting on and off over the last week finally finishing it this morning. I struggled a bit with it at first as I couldn't get the tone and colour of the sea correct as it faded towards the horizon. Once I got that right I worked down to the foreground, painting in the structure of the rocks before working on the waves coming onto the beach.
